Finestpreps.com promised to introduce you to the top rising sophomores in the country with the Boyz 2 Men series. We took a ride up the PA turnpike from Aliquippa, PA and paid a visit to Allison Park, PA home of the Talbots to introduce our next diaper dandy.
Eddie Edwards, a 2 sport athlete understand’s what it takes to reach the next level. Edwards boasts an impressive 3.93 GPA while putting together an impressive freshman campaign in both football and baseball.
Many of the nation’s top athletes struggle with the decision of whether to focus on football or baseball. Not Edwards, he already has his mind made up that he wants to catch the pigskin in his collegiate career, which isn’t a bad idea based on his performance his freshman year.
The learning curve for most freshman is to difficult to contribute immediately, but that’s not the case with Eddie as you can see from his highlight tape below. Eddie shows an impressive skill set and being blessed with terrific speed and agility doesn’t hurt his cause. Most baseball players make the easy transition to football because of their hand/eye coordination and Eddie is no different.
Look for Edwards to continue to flourish in the Hampton program and ultimately become one of the nation’s top receivers in the class of 2014.
